This is an update regarding the policy and guidelines for TN's Off Topic forum. This forum is an exception for TN members in that although the Forum Rules apply here, there is a gray area for postings and behavior that are allowed due to the nature of off topic subjects. A few guidelines to keep in mind when posting:

1. Profanity in Off Topic is fine, but please do not use expletives in the title of your thread.

2. If starting a new thread that contains nudity or sexual/non-sexual graphic material, please place a "WW" work warning or "NSFW" not something for work in the title so members can make note and not open that thread at an inappropriate moment. Also, if adding a photo or video that is sexual or graphic to a thread that has not already been declared WW or NSFW, please post up a reply to that thread declaring the content of what you intend to post, then follow up that reply with another that actually contains the material. That way members are again forewarned, and staff members can also edit a work warning into the thread title if they deem it necessary.

3. All manner of discussion is welcome here, including religious and political discussions, as long as the talk doesn't degenerate into personal insults, racial slurs, etc. Off Topic threads are open to people of any political persuasion, so please do not report a post or complain to a staff member about the political content just because you don't like it. Deal with it, debate it, or move on. Also, people who storm into the Off Topic forums and sling personal insults due to political or social content will be dealt with immediately and sternly. Ignorance of the forum rules is absolutely no excuse, nor is ignorance of this OT guideline notice. Know the rules, behave accordingly, or suffer the consequences.

4. Last but not least, staff members reserve the right (as noted in rule #4 and rule #5 from the Forum Rules) to determine what is or is not acceptable in the Off Topic forum. If you have a complaint, please either report the thread or reply, or send a PM to a staff member.

Thanks, guys! As always, enjoy Off Topic....:thumbsup:

Given that this sticky thread has only ever gotten a paltry 36 reads I figure it's an excellent time to bump it.

I'd like this bump to serve as a permanent notice for members in particular who show up out of nowhere to discuss political or social threads. Guideline #3 above is the most relevant for these visitors, and to that end anyone stepping into Off Topic to spew profanities and insults at members will be swiftly and decisively dealt with, no exceptions. Be civil to your fellow TN members or don't bother posting in OT at all.

Also, for new members to Toyota Nation or else members new to the Off Topic forum, you have received adequate warning via this forum's requirement that registered members only are granted access, this sticky guideline, and simple common sense regarding bulletin boards, forums, and other internet/web content, that this forum's threads may contain content objectionable to some and but not to others. This content includes but is not limited to: Nudity, foul language, religious and political discussions, etc. Also, all threads with content that include nudity are labeled with NSFW warnings to indicate that content and forewarn forum visitors. If you find the content in Off Topic to be objectionable, please do not complain about it and simply leave and not visit this specific forum again. Filing a complaint will only assuage your own sensitivities and will not change forum policy.

Thank you for your understanding and compliance.
